Early years as a Magus

Shortly after becoming a Magus of the Order, Sandre traveled to Stranggore to stay for a season as a guest. At the end of the season, Sandre was offered the opportunity of membership at Stranggore and accepted. I

n his first few years, Sandre came into conflict with two members of the Crimson Brotherhood, and beaten a third in the Certamen Tournament. He is not thought of well by this covenant, and he does not think well of them either.

Sandre and his family were briefly in touch after he became a full Magus, but he avoids contact whenever possible. However this is difficult whenever Sandre travels near his fathers lands.


Sandre was apprenticed to Garvonn a magus of Amici Britanniae. Sandre passed his gauntlet on his first try, but did not win his sigil from Garvonn until the 1208 tribunal. At the fall tribunal he won his sigil from Garvonn, whom he knocked unconscious in the third round of certamen, due to the use of a considerable amount of vis.

Early Years

Born William de Gallios, Sandre is a son of the Duke of Bedford, a Norman. Sandre's gift was discovered very early in his life and his father, ever looking for power and advantage, was quick to give him up as an apprentice of the Order by the time he was 5.
